Christian Humanist Profiles 171: Psalms as a Grammar for Faith

Stream or download this episode.

Late in his posthumously-published Philosophical Investigations, in section 373, Ludwig Wittgenstein presents a cryptic aphorism regarding grammar: “Grammar tells what kind of object anything is. (Theology as grammar.)”  That thought has offered teasing possibilities to people of faith as long as we’ve read Wittgenstein, and one fascinating project arising from that prompt is to think of the Scriptures as a grammar of sorts.  W.H. Bellinger undertakes just that project in his new book Psalms as a Grammar for Faith, and Christian Humanist Profiles is glad to welcome him on to explore it.
